Everybody in the cryptosphere is wondering which banks in the world are going to adopt a cryptocurrency for internal purposes (Stellar Lumens and Ripple’s XRP being the leading candidates) or which cryptocurrency will be chosen by banks as a viable option for clients and investors.

In this regard, everybody is thinking about Bitcoin, Ethereum and the top 7-10 big players in general. This trend of thinking only brings to the surface how unimaginative speculators are because nobody is thinking out of the box. What we mean is this: why is nobody wondering about which cryptocurrency project will buy its bank and disrupt both the financial and the crypto world?

Well, Charlie Lee, founder of Litecoin is thinking just that. Not just thinking. Mr. Lee used his Twitter account just a couple of days ago to announce that he is teaming up with TokenPay to buy a significant stake in Germany’s WEG bank. The idea behind this move is for Litecoin to get closer to terminal users, consumers, and give them an easy-to-use, and cheap way to get involved in Litecoins in real-life.

It’s a most exciting move. It’s creative, out-of-the-box, very ambitious and very intelligent. I’ve stated time and again that the most successful digital assets won’t necessarily be the ones with the best technology, the higher short-term price increases or any other of the usual parameters in which we measure a coin’s performance.

The cryptocurrencies that will take the market over will be those that find a way to be adopted in mass by solving real-life problems for real-life people. That is why projects like Stellar, Ripple or Tron have created so much interest despite the fact they’ve not been around for so long, and they’ve experienced bearish runs at times.

These are projects with a purpose. Stellar and Ripple aim to take over the international transfer market, while Tron wants to make the whole web decentralized by blockchain technology. And now, Litecoin seeks to become an everyday currency that you can use even without a computer, or without a digital wallet. Imagine you could apply for a Litecoin credit card or debit card and buy your cigarettes or visit Starbucks and pay it with Litecoin through your card.

This kind of development would give Litecoin (LTC) access to users with no digital expertise that doesn’t understand blockchain technology or the idea behind cryptocurrencies. It would connect a digital asset with average people in a way in which almost every current coin is very far away from achieving or even imagining. Of course, this kind of market penetration would give Litecoin a significant competitive advantage.

It would create the type of demand that doesn’t come from speculative forces but sheer everyday use by average people. End users won’t need to understand any technical concepts, they will see their transfer fees reduced dramatically, and they’ll love that for sure.

Litecoin (LTC) is all set to hit the moon

Let’s understand this clearly: so far the vast majority of crypto enthusiasts and investors are engineers, scientists, and IT people. If Litecon gets its way with this, then you could have construction workers, janitors and all kinds of people joining the cryptosphere, whether they know or understand it, or not. That would be nothing short of revolutionary.
This news alone makes the present a fascinating time to get a piece of the Litecoin action, but that’s not all.

Next August the mining difficulty for Litecoin will increase. It will change the game. Higher mining difficulty makes every block in the chain harder to calculate and thus the token production decreases. If this decrease in supply coincides with a boost in demand due to Litecoin’s real-life applications then it’s all Economics 101: the LTC price will skyrocket.

Then, on September, there’s the Litecoin global summit. As the event nears in time, hype and rumors about possible announcements will also boost its value. And who knows? There could be some significant announcements at that summit so we should all pay close attention.

So, in a nutshell: Litecoin (LTC) is developing the potential to become the first cryptocurrency that can be used by any non-technical average person anywhere in the world as a local currency that makes their lives easier, quicker, cheaper safer.

If the bank deal goes through then, Litecoin will become one of the most undervalued assets in the crypto markets, and it will rise steadily until it finds its correct balance point which could be as high as 1000 USD. Are you among those who had not taken Litecoin seriously so far? You should reconsider now. Are you among those who wanted to get into Litecoin but were somewhat undecided? Just dive in, this is the time to build your Litecoin (LTC) portfolio. Hurry up.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
